Friday Florals: Peach Takeover

Working on a project for a client at present, we've become a bit obsessed with the peach palettes and especially peach peonies we've been encountering. We thought this Friday, since it's Labour Weekend, we'd keep it simple and show you a few of our favourite uses of peach through your wedding florals. We love how vibrant yet elegant and understated peach flowers are and peonies with their feminine, graceful appeal are the perfect wedding flower.

And remember, that Harlow Garland's florals department, HG Blooms is ready and excited to help you achieve your dream wedding bouquet or floral decor with our expert floral styling tailored entirely to you.

We also think that some peach peonies would look amazing tucked into bouquets like these to the right to complement the periwinkle blues, lavenders and dusty hay hues of the thistle and straw.

Behind the Scenes: Industrial Winter Styled Shoot

This shoot was by far our favourite yet and also our busiest. As well as sourcing the elements, we also created some ourselves, like the candelabra and votives made from copper pipe fittings, the floral arrangements, the hinge placemarkers and the handpainted favour cakes. 

We had a truly wonderful assortment of vendors for this shoot who were an absolutely pleasure to work with! 

Kate Little Photography was our first photographer with Flynn Gough acting as second shooter on film, digital and Polaroid. 

Robyn Munro from Inspired Hair twirled up a storm of follicle fabulousness on our models while Meagan Rawlings perfected the palette of our model canvases. 

The incredible gowns were once again supplied by Vinka Design- the absolute best in bridal couture. The suits were sourced from Munns (Lavinia at Botany Munns is your go-to girl for all things suits!) while the bridesmaid attire was sourced from Alannah Hill in Newmarket - garments, we're STILL getting compliments on from those involved. 

We sourced the chairs from The Great Hiring Co, the gold cutlery and festoon lights from The Pretty Prop Shop, those incredible dinner plates and angular champagne flutes from The Studio of Tableware and the rest we sourced or created ourselves.
